Drah-go A-chair-a-be

There. That's the pronunciation. Now when you are saying his name in your mind, you're saying it right.

N.E. Henderson. Wow. You've pieced together some amazing characters and dynamics with this one. I still can't figure out Drago. Is he evil? Is he not? What side is he? Who is he? Do I like him? Hate him? Love him? He alone made me want to pull my hair out. And I actually like my own hair, so this is big. And yes, the answer is I love him. I really fucking love

♥️Fantasy Land Blog Book Reviewer♥️
Dirty Blue is my first N.E. Henderson book. I have to say it took a bit for me to get into this story. I understand to a point on all the 5 stars. This book has heart and a good storyline. But I felt like there was something missing. I didn't feel this story had heat. I felt it when they were at the bar, that was great. But I lost it after Brianna woke up the next day. Something went away. Brianna is great with Gabe, and takes on that role very well, even though she doesn't have to.

Dirty Blue is brilliant. You think you know how the story will unfold but, trust me, you will not! N.E. Henderson seamlessly developed a plot filled with suspense, action and steam that grabs your attention from page one. And be ready for hell of a roller coaster ride with unforeseen situations and twists.
In Dirty Blue, book 1 of this trilogy, we meet L.A. detective Brianna Andrews. She plays by the book and believes in facts. But having to investigate the hot and dangerous Drago Acerbi, whose f

First, know that this a trilogy so the ending of Book 1 will definitely leave you wanting so much more. Bri is a cop working a case that involves something shady and a baby. A baby that Bri is trying to take care of rather than putting him into the system. Drago is a wealthy man and happens to be the focus of Bri's investigation from a professional and personal standpoint. Personal because he makes her feel things she has never felt before. Drago seems to be just as caught up with Bri as she is ...more

I received an ARC copy for an honest review.

Gahhh! Talk about a cliffhanger! I need books 2 & 3 NOW!

This my first book by N.E. Henderson and I am glad Drago & Bri were my introduction!

Drago is a "criminal" technically by association & Bri a detective forced to look into his supposed criminal activity.

One thing Bri & Drago did not count on was falling for each other!

This book is like a mystery wrapped in suspense. I cant wait to see how this ends. I need to know answers. Drago super HOT and The Football suite HOT HOT HOT

Detective Brianna Andrews new case might be her last. Not only does she think shes dealing with criminals, cover-ups, dirty cops and business men. She's now talking care of a baby who my or my not belong to a crime family. The mother left the child for fear of her life and her sons. Bri is not believing the story of Miss Chasity Carlisle. W

DNF. Stopped reading at about 40%. Thankfully this book was free on Amazon so I didn't actually pay any money for it.

I disliked the heroine, Bri, from the first page when she was shopping for lingerie online (while working her shift as a police officer). She was bemoaning her inability to afford the black lace panty set on a cop's salary. From out outset, she just came off as really immature.

From then on, the story just seemed ridiculous. Bri ends up fostering an infant that is left at the polic

Detective Brianna Andrews finds herself with a baby, that isn’t hers, and assigned to investigate believed criminal Drago Acerbi all in a day’s work. Oh, and said baby, Gabe, happens to be Drago’s but he doesn’t know... And according to Gabe's mother, he wants them both dead!

Bad boy, Drago, certainly has the image of a “criminal” and comes from a long line, but Bri finds there is more to him than meets the eye. But can she prove it? What begins as “just doing my job” quickly turns into much, mu

Okay so when I first got this book on Kobo I assumed it was going to be about some sexy male cop. Boy was my assumption based off the cover wrong haha
In this book we meet Brianne. She is a kick ass female cop who comes from a wealthy family but doesn’t want anything to do with her father’s money. She has a great relationship with her sister-in-law and a good one with her brother. Bri and her father do not get along; her mother passed away when she was a child. She is put on a case with a male co

WHAT!!!! I was lucky enough to receive an ARC for my honest opinion.

If you like suspense books with some sizzling sexy times then this book is for you. I will say I knew this is the 1st out of 3 books in this series. If you don't like a cliffhanger then I suggest you wait until they are all out then read them. Yes I know I have no idea what the other 2 are going to be like, but if they are anything like this 1 then it will be worth it.

I love a good mystery and always try to get them figured ou

Definitely a must read!!

I’ve read books by Ms. Henderson before and really enjoyed them, but I think this one is her best yet! Even with it ending in a cliffhanger, I loved it. The characters are likeable and real. They have dimension and personalities that you can fall in love with. Bri is snarky and feisty which is the perfect compliment to Drago. And it is steaming hot but still has an amazing storyline that keeps your mind thinking and wondering. Cannot wait for the next one!

N.E Henderson never disappoints! This book was no different. When the book started out I thought I knew who the bad guy was halfway through you realize things are not as they seem. This was incredibly well written. there is a reason N.E Henderson is by far one of my favorite authors! she does an amazing job of tricking the readers

Dirty Blue is a book that you will not be able to put down! It’s everything I’ve come to expect from N.E.

What I did not expect from this read was all the extra emotions that came with it! It was HOT! It was suspenseful!

Just no

I know I'm the odd woman out but I just cannot continue. I made it to chapter 5 and couldn't go any further. The FMC is not suck a rookie that she would do something that irresponsible to jeopardize the baby, her neighbor, and her career is too unbelievable. It annoys me when you say how smart a character is and have them do something so dumb even a child would know better. Thank goodness it was free.

Another amazing read from NE Henderson!

This novel had so much suspense and intrigue, that I never knew exactly what was going to happen next. The characters each had so much depth and history to them, that you felt as though you truly got to know them. You heard some about their past, and what had led up to the situations they are in, within present day. Add in the whole "bad-boy" element, and you have a novel that is simply unputdownable.

I highly enjoyed Dirty Blue, and recommend everyone go an

Beautiful forbidden love 💘 Drago 🔥

Wow what an emotional rollercoaster ride between Bri and Drago. Detective Brianna Andrews is drawn into an investigation when Chasity Carlisle comes into the station claiming Drago Acerbi is the father and is trying to kill her and her infant son who she is there to abandon. When Bri continues to question her she finds her story unbelievable. When she asks her if she wants to press charges she says no and walks out. She to the so-called threat the baby can't be

Dirty Blue is the first book that I've read by the super talented N.E. Henderson, and HOLY HELL! I'M COMPLETELY HOOKED! This is a romantic suspense, so I'm going to try & somewhat describe it very basically so no spoiler douchery takes flight! It all starts when a woman comes into Detective Brianna Andrews precinct, which leads to one crazy ride of a case. See, this woman makes some accusations against a man named Drago Acerbi, whose father was a known criminal. Now, she's assigned to go und ...more

I finished reading Dirty Blue and immediately wanted more. It’s the perfect combination of suspense, action, mystery and romance. The story was well written and moved at a good steady pace. I loved Drago and Bri. I’m glad I decided to give Mrs. Henderson’s book a try.

Drago is a man born into a family known for violent crimes and drug dealings. He is the Eldest son of Vincent Acerbi, a man who’s name is known throughout the country inciting fear in the hearts of some and arousing anger in ot
